Adobe launches Photoshop Lightroom 4.1 Release Candidate 2
Adobe has released a second Release Candidate version of Lightroom 4.1, its Raw conversion and asset management software. The latest version adds support for 13 additional cameras, including the Nikon D3200, Olympus E-M5, Pentax K-01, Ricoh GXR A16 24-85mm and the three latest Samsung NXs. Interestingly, it also adds an improved 'defringe' option to reduce axial chromatic aberrations.
The latest release candidate includes a series of bug fixes, that are detailed on Adobe's blog site, in addition to support for 16, 24 and 32-bit HDR TIFF files.
The most interesting update, from our perspective, is the improved ability to remove the purple and green axial CA that can appear on out-of-focus regions, particularly those shot with fast lenses. Adobe's Eric Chan explains the feature in a detailed blog post.
As usual, the Release Candidate tag indicates 'that this update is well tested but would benefit from additional community testing before it is distributed automatically to all of our customers.'

- Lightroom 4.1 RC2 now includes the ability to process HDR TIFF files. (16, 24 or 32-bit TIFF files) This can be quite useful if you have merged multiple exposures into a single 32-bit image using Photoshop’s HDR Pro. Using the new basic panel controls can be a very effective and straightforward method of achieving an overall balance across the tonal range.
- Additional Color Fringing corrections have been added to Lightroom 4.1 RC2. Please see this blog post for additional details.
